Part 2: Vietnam Property Tour
Who will I meet in Ho Chi Minh City?
We are working with one of Vietnam’s leading property agencies, ERA (Electronic Realty Associates). ERA is a franchise, with more than 14,000 offices worldwide.
Once in Vietnam, you will meet directly with a representative, that will brief you in their office, and then take you on a property tour in Ho Chi Minh City.
What kind of property / developments can I visit?
That depends entirely on your personal preferences. While most visitors prefer pre-construction and under construction developments (i.e., not yet completed), you can also visit completed units.
Do I get to decide what to see?
Yes. Our partner agency will bring you to the projects, where a majority of the visitors that participate in the tour, want to go. Normally, 3-5 persons take the tours at a time. AsiaPropertyHQ keeps down the amount of visitors per tour, to give you the best opportunities to talk with our local experts and to get full attention.
What will I learn during the briefing?
Starting at around 9 AM in the morning, you will spend a few hours in ERAs office, for a legal and process briefing. During this briefing, you will learn how the buying process works, how to transfer money, and foreign ownership restrictions.
How long is the tour?
The tour normally lasts from 1 PM to 4 or 5 PM.
What if I want to see additional properties?
Then we can book an additional 1 day property tour. Normally, 1 day is enough, but if a follow up tour is requested, we will help you to schedule one with ERA.
Part 3: Additional Support
What’s the next step once I’ve decided what I want to buy?
All additional procedures are handled directly between the buyer and the agency. However, in case you have questions or need some advice, you can send us an email.
What if I don’t want to buy property?
That’s okay. AsiapropertyHQ.com doesn’t require that you commit to any investment or additional purchases, by ordering this package.
What kind of help can I get from AsiapropertyHQ.com?
We can answer your questions or offer advice based on your situation. We can also discuss matters with the agent, in case you don’t have time to talk to them directly.
Do AsiapropertyHQ.com receive commission from the agency?
Yes, we receive a commission from the agency, in case you decide to buy property. However, no extra commission/cost is added to you as a buyer, as we only take a part of the existing commission.
Do AsiapropertyHQ.com offer any guarantees or insurance?
No, we don’t offer any kind of insurance or compensation, due to losses caused by the agency, developer, banks, government or any other party that may be involved in the buying process.
What kind of risks should I be aware of?
Vietnam is a developing country, which comes with a relatively high reward, but also higher risks:
a. Developers may go bankrupt, thus halting ongoing construction. However, this is rare and there are many international and local developers with reputable track records operating in Vietnam.
b. Land ownership disputes, and other disputes that may involve the government, banks, developers and other entities.
c. Changes in national foreign property ownership laws
e. Currency fluctuations
